Covent Garden in 1983

When I wrote about my Zeiss camera on August 11th I promised to post a colour photo taken on it. Although the camera was never designed for colour film - the lens isn't colour corrected - I tried one roll in around 1983. The results were quite good - certainly sharp and in fact with no evidence of difficulty over the colour.

This photo is of the 'new' Covent Garden, rebuilt after the old fruit-and-veg market moved out. It's something of a tourist trap, but pleasant enough - often with live music in the downstairs restaurant area.

This was the last roll I ever took on the Zeiss: I found the 35mm single-lens reflex (an Exa 500) gave me a lot more flexibility but I always regretted the fact that 35mm just isn't as good quality.
